FREMONT, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RSA Conference–Attivo Networks®, the award-winning leader in deception for cybersecurity threat detection, announced today that the company received an SC Trust Award for the Best Deception Technology at this week’s SC 2020 Awards ceremony in San Francisco. The award was given in recognition of the value of Attivo Networks’ ThreatDefend® Detection Platform and its ability to significantly reduce attacker dwell time across a wide range of environments, as well as its comprehensive threat detection capabilities.
“We are incredibly honored to be an SC Award recipient this year,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “This award acknowledges the value of deception technology to organizations of all sizes and highlights its growing momentum as adoption rates continue to soar. As an increasing number of companies seek to improve their threat detection and response capabilities, we look forward to continuing to refine the ThreatDefend® platform to safeguard the critical data of our customers.”
Jurors independently evaluated Attivo Networks ThreatDefend® Detection Platform based on the product’s functionality, ease of use, scalability, customer support and other criteria to determine the value of Attivo Networks’ cybersecurity solution. The ThreatDefend® Detection Platform emerged as the most impressive, innovative product among the entrants in this year’s running.
SC Magazine specifically cited the “authentic-looking decoy environment and high-fidelity alert system that reduces false positives” in its announcement of this year’s winners. Attivo Networks’ ThreatDefend® Detection Platform is designed to detect threats early in the attack cycle by attracting the attacker away from production assets with decoys, lures, and other misdirections. The company continuously enhances its deception capabilities to help enterprise customers accelerate incident response, significantly reducing dwell time. Research conducted by Enterprise Management, commissioned by Attivo Networks, revealed that deception technology users reported a 91 percent dwell time reduction.
